Designed for use in IP security cameras, the 128GB SR-VMA Series Industrial microSDXC Memory Card from Sony uses MLC NAND flash memory so it can better withstand 24/7 use when compared to consumer microSD cards that use TLC NAND flash memory. When recording a video bit rate of 4 Mb/s, this card has a lifespan of around 3-4 years and a TBW (Terabytes Written) rating of up to 274TB.
Aside from its specs that make it suitable for IP camera use, this card features a storage capacity of 128GB and takes advantage of the UHS-I bus to support functions such as raw and JPEG still capture captures and 4K, Full HD, and 360° video. It can achieve maximum read speeds of up to 95 MB/s and maximum write speeds of up to 60 MB/s. Thanks to its U3 speed class rating, minimum write speeds are guaranteed not to drop below 30 MB/s. If your device does not support U3, this card is compatible with the U1 and Class 10 standards, each of which guarantees minimum write speeds of 10 MB/s.
Sony's able to withstand temperatures from -13 to 185°F, allowing you to take this card with you into extreme environments, such as snow and deserts. Should the card's data become compromised, you also benefit from the option to download free Sony SD Card Info Viewer software. Included is a microSD to SD card reader, allowing this card to be used in SD-compatible cameras and card readers.
